Interested In An Indian Food Tasting Session?

Hello to all my fellow neighbours, as many of you know I run “Jaimi’s Spice Kitchen” – where I offer curry cooking classes within the comfort of your own home. 

To give you all a taster of what my food is like, I was thinking of holding a food sampling session on my front garden so you are able to get a taste of the kind of dishes you could learn to make during my classes. 

This would be a new experience for me too, but I thought it would be a lovely way to share my passion, give you all a taster and meet all of our local village people 😊. 

I would really appreciate, so I can gauge interest – if you could leave a reply below or send me a message/call to let me know if you would be interested in popping by my sampling session so I can decide on whether to go ahead and plan one, or not. 

Many thanks,
